Police -- Don't Call Amy's Death an Overdose Yet

7/23/2011 2:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Police in London released their first official statement that acknowledges the death of Amy Winehouse -- but warned that's too soon to say she overdosed on drugs.

In a statement, London Police Superintendent Raj Kohli said, "Next of kin have been informed, and I can confirm that officers are now satisfied that the deceased is Amy Winehouse."

As for the cause of death, and speculation that Amy -- who had battled drug and alcohol problems for years -- may have OD'ed, Kohli said, "
I am aware of reports suggesting this death is the result of a suspected drugs overdose, but I would like to re-emphasize that no post-mortem examination has yet taken place and it would be inappropriate to speculate on the cause of death."

drug overdose or years of drug abuse that ultimately destroyed her body enough to fail on its' own.

Either way it's all going to be drug related in the end.

Did she have any bullet holes in her...NO...Was she stabbed to death...NO...Was she found hanging from the rafters...NO...Was she a known drug addict...YES...Were there drugs in her place...MORE THAN LIKELY...It don't take a mental giant to figure this one out...

just read-though not 100% confirmed-that it was most likely a alcohol induced seizure. friends said she had quit all hard drugs shortly before, but kept drinking. so after her long struggle with hard drugs, it was a legal the-alcohol, that had killed her....


what a shame! i truly am shaken up about this-she was immensely talented. and a legendary artist in a world where music is mass -produced and lame she had raw talent and character. RIP AMY! i will always remember you as an iconic pop culture phenomenon! love you amy!

The disease of addiction has no barriers between the races, the classes, poverty or celebrity. It looks to me like there is a new resident at Thugz Mansion. RIP Amy.

Eileen - Really? REALLY?!? Come ON.....was VERY well written, but wasted on this one. Should have saved it for someone with a career that wasn't overrated and irrelevant to the masses that listen to music worth listening to.
